Department of Chinese Studies 中文系

Southeast Asian Chinese and Modern China Research Group

Introduction

Southeast Asian Chinese and Modern China Research Group (formerly named The Chinese in Southeast Asia Research Group) in the Department of Chinese Studies has been set up with the support of the department to promote research on the Chinese in Southeast Asia, as one of the key focus areas for the department's future development, and offer ample opportunities for collaboration with international research partners. As an interdisciplinary research group, it focuses research on various issues related to history, religion, literature, linguistics, politics and other cultural and socio-economic issues of Southeast Asian Chinese and their interactions with modern China.

The research group was officially formed in late August 2007. Members of the group consist of our existing faculty members and graduate students who are involved in the teaching and research of Southeast Asian Chinese and modern China. To date, the group has held regular seminars and invited visiting scholars and researchers to share their research findings in the respective fields, in addition to the regular meetings among staff and students to exchange scholarly views and fieldwork experiences. It also plans to collaborate with local and overseas academic associations in organizing conferences and other academic activities. We hope the research group will not only serve as a mechanism to stimulate more research effort from our faculty members and students and to facilitate research activities in the department, but also become a platform to develop the research strength and capability of the department and enhance its academic standing in the international academic arena.

Our activities cover:

  1. Regular meetings among group members
  2. Talks and seminars by invited scholars
  3. Co-organize academic activities with academic and research institutions/associations
  4. Organize international conferences
  5. Publications

Research Areas

  1. History
  2. Religion
  3. Literature
  4. Linguistics
  5. Politics
  6. Other cultural and socio-economic issues of Southeast Asia Chinese and modern China
